OTTAWA (Reuters) - Bank of Canada Governor Mark Carney said on Thursday that it is providing significant stimulus even as it faces significant headwinds from abroad that are hitting the domestic economy.

The central banker said there are forward-looking signs that are starting to be positive, including support from Asian demand and firming in some Canadian consumer data.

But the Canadian outlook also faces key uncertainties, especially from the United States and Europe, he said.
